“Ah, sleep: is there anything quite like it? So easily discarded and discounted and yet so dearly missed the next morning. You’ve heard me say it enough, so I’ll keep it short. A good night’s sleep is the foundation for a healthy, happy, productive existence. Good sleep keeps us lean and thinking clearly. And without good, regular sleep, we just go through life in a scattered daze, everything foggy, slightly confusing, and less enjoyable. We’re not really ourselves if we haven’t slept. We desperately need a good night’s sleep, every night”

So, yep, you might have guessed it, I’m sleep deprived. For those of you that may know, I am now the proud new parent of a beautiful little.  But I need more sleep. The constant waking has thrown my circadian rhythm into compete disarray and sometimes I feel so tired that I can’t remember my own name, let alone where I’ve put the car keys. Seattle’s NBC affiliate, King 5 television station then kindly reminds me that “the average new parent loses nearly 44 days – or 1,056 hours – of sleep during the first year of a child’s life”…..Awseome!!

Though a good night’s sleep is the obvious remedy, this is difficult when you’ve got a newborn to look after. That’s why I was particularly excited when I stumbled on the following article “How to Manufacture The Best Night Sleep of Your Life” by Mark Sisson, founder of Mark’s Daily Apple, my bible on the art of healthy living.

Quality sleep is important for so many reasons and understanding why and how the effects of poor sleep impact our lives can be overwhelming. That’s why we take your sleeping needs seriously. If you or a family member would like to book in for a complimentary, no obligation consultation, or would like some help of how to get “back to sleep”, please let your family chiropractor know on your next visit.

I hope you enjoy the read as much as I did.
